Oh No Associated with Head & Neck/Throat Cancer. Posted on January 9, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

Had found a swollen lymph on left side of my neck, never suspected cancer until my primary care DR sent me for a CT scan. Results said I needed a biopsy for a complete diagnosis so I was set up with a Head and Neck cancer surgeon at Johns Hopkins. She did a needle biopsy and found it was cancer caused by HPV virus. Surgery followed on Dec 9, 2011 where she removed the lump and also the primary site (8mm tumor) in the back of my throat. Follow up will be radiation and chemo treatments for six weeks.
